i told myself that i was going to draw a lot during my four months of summer vacation. clearly, that didn't happen. X3; i did get a chance to sit down and draw a bit today though.

i wanted to try out my dip pen, but i can't control it very well and it scratches at the paper and leaks a bit from the tip. does anyone have any suggestions or tips on handling dip pens? well, i gave up on the dip pen halfway through and used a 0.28 gel pen instead (thin-tip gel pens are <3). i wanted to practice CG-ing, but i got lazy and impatient, so i did some sloppy toning instead. X3;;

same thing, only with the couch toned differently.
megane characters are always so awesome~ ^0^ but i hate colouring in kyoya's hair. X3; in fact, i don't like drawing the hair of any of the ouran characters. they have such difficult hair!
(speaking of hair, i bought hair mousse today just for the heck of it and accidentally sprayed the kitchen table [i was fiddling with the bottle in the kitchen don't ask]. i told my parents not to eat anything that looked white and foamy. whoops~ /random)

i was rooting through some papers and i found this rough sketch:

look familiar? -->

i drew the sketch in chinese school (oh man, chinese school X3;; i used to doodle a lot in that class) over a year ago, if i recall correctly. i wanted it to be ritsuka and soubi, but when i started the actual drawing, it didn't work out quite right, so they became original characters instead. maybe i should work with the sketch and try making it soubi/ritsuka again -- it's been a while since i did loveless fanart.

i haven't been drawing much in the past year, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to buy art supplies... XD;;

Tones!! I love the tones. It goes really well with the dynamics in your linework.

Hair mousse? Eww :P

Kyouya's too smug and cocky for his own good. I'll learn to twirl a pen sooner or later. After all, I managed to crack the secret to you flippy-hand-pen-rotating-thing >=D

I thought your SoubixRitsuka rough sketch was actually pretty good. When I glanced at them before even reading your paragraph about it, I was already pretty sure it was them XD

Draw Ishida! You still haven't done that yet XD

mousse remeinds me of moose. only...foamier. :D

kyouya is so much awesome. pen twirling is harder than the flippy thing!

thanks! :D

ishida is not cool enough for me to attempt. ;)

From: [identity profile]'d you do the tones? Your Kyoya's the sexy! XD I haven't read Loveless for a while now...but that umbrella shot is so sweet...and yes! Finish it! We need more Loveless fanart!!! XDDD

thanks so much! ^___^ i haven't read the loveless manga, actually -- only seen the anime. i did the tones in photoshop, using the bucket-->pattern function. i need to download more tones 'cause my supply is so little. XD

Hehe I'm the opposite ^-^ I read the manga but I didn't even know there was an anime!
Ooh so that's how you do it...I don't even have a tone pattern downloaded :x where do you get them from? (sorry I'm being really lazy to search :P)

you can get tones from devArt. :) they have a section for just tones. also, i got a few of my tones from this site:
hope that helps a bit! :)

Ohhh you did such a good job on Kyoya!!! XD I love the tones! I remember trying out dip pens, they are fun...and messy... don't travel on a plane with them...

thanks! :D:D haha, you used a dip pen on a plane? i'm so scared of spilling the ink on my carpet or something -- i always screw the lid tightly even when i'm using the pen. XD;
